Noodles: you've got real shoes now. Order some proper shoe care equipment from the Hanger Project or Gentlemen's Footwear. At the very least, you need mid or dark brown shoe cream, black shoe cream and neutral wax. I'd also make sure you have two horsehair brushes, one for brown and one for black. Saphir is great for the shoe polish materials. Allen Edmons is a good source for inexpensive horse hair brushes.
When I purchased my first C&J from a local store, they gave me the first one you have in your picture.
Got it. I thut having black shoe polish and cedar shoe trees would be it. I'll take good care of them. Thanks for the good advice.
I guess polishing your shoes with an old shower towel isn't as good as those burshes?
Doodals, you see the love you get here?
New shoes1 knows his stuff!
Why did I blow $700-800 on RLBL Shoes. I bought two pairs thinking they were made by c&j. Not only was that not true, I boughy Derbies, which didnt go with my cbd suits. But thanks to Cleav and other I am on the right track.
Now can I get that DB Formosa? Lol
For a great finish: Use one of your wife's old nylon stockings as polishing cloth.
Not for my precious shoes.
I will just take her new ones and try not to get caught. Lol
And if you're particularly feeling adventurous do this when she is wearing them!
Right there with you brah.
What color? Do you have any pics after you put some miles on them? Thanks
This, Doodals, do that. They give shooz a nice finish and shine.
Get into Suitsupply, ask for the La Spalla (do not try on the other cuts).
It is no Formosa surely, but a very nice Neapolitan suit.
Make sure to get the right size & take pics and post them here.
I thought those suits were made in Chinese factories? I don't mean to demean SS - clearly it has hit a nerve in the market and is a big success - but it makes me cringe a little to read on a forum like ours that a machine-made suit, made in China, is a "nice Neapolitan suit". I don't mean to start any controversy here - but apples and oranges.
